Launching The Store & Giving Back

Finally, it’s been close to 2 years trying to figure how I can give back to the community and I am grateful for the generosity of so many people that have helped me along the way. I’ve had the best opportunities growing up in the Bay Area, esp. participating in youth programs that my family could never had afford without the generosity of individuals that expected nothing in return. I love surfing, I love photography and I love the Bay Area. I hope my photography can make the world a better place, even slightly.

I will be donating 25% of all sales revenues to a local youth program here in the Bay Area. Since launching the store, I have already zero’d in on a program and will be reaching out soon.

If you have any suggestions or questions, feel free to contact me.

Stay tuned for an update in the coming weeks. Be sure to check out the store by clicking here or head to the menu tab.

A New Chapter: Moments

Time passes us by so quickly, sometimes it’s hard to keep track of what needs to be done, or what needs to be accomplished. Time works against all of us. I, myself, try to get things done as quickly as possible which leaves more time for photography and surfing. I guess 1 year from today when I look back at my life, I’ll have a collection of memories to relive 🙂

Here’s a quick video I compiled this past weekend to remind me to keep doing the things that make me happy.  Photography is becoming  a bigger part of my life, discovered through surfing. I can’t wait to see where this new chapter takes me.

The full Youtube video was suspended due to Jay Andre management’s removal. It had over 10,000+ hits. 😳

Passing Through Point Reyes Station

Point Reyes Station is a nice place to visit while traveling through to Point Reyes National Seashore. It was once a critical commercial district where  goods passed through via the Pacific Coast Railroad in 1875-1933. The commercial line provided a connection to ferry lines to San Francisco, Sausalito, Tomales Bay and 30 miles north to Cazadero (Russian River).

As a child I found railroad stations exciting, mysterious, and even beautiful, as indeed they often were. Paul Johnson

Writing this blog, I finally understand the railroad tracks while camping in Guerneville and floating down the Russian River (Jazz & Blues Festival on the Russian River is a popular music festival in the summer amongst San Franciscans). I can now understand the connection between San Francisco and Guerneville amongst city dwellers moving to Sonoma County. Here’s 24 things you can do on the Russian River.
